Bumpers played a big role in the city era, which is considered by many fans the best Cartoon Network time period for three reasons. First was the brilliant mix of 2D characters in 3D worlds. The second reason was CN's outstanding music and scenery. The third reason was that CN had blocks and bumpers that didn't start losing the fans' interest. Bumpers would usually contain a story of their own from having a 5 second bumper of the CN logo on a billboard to Juniper Lee trying to beat the Powerpuff Girls to the battle by a subway. The Subway bumper, any nightime bumpers, Christmas bumpers, Summer bumpers, and the intro bumper to CN invaded are concidered by many the best example of awesome scenery ever in CN history. The look again played a major part and even the annocement bumpers are in the same style. The 1990s and early 2000s bumpers were boring too many fans, so under lead of a new president a look some fans claim is superior was made by the same graphic designers that did the Matrix Trilogy. Scenes were fantastic and got thumbs up for the clips. However the designers were too expensive for CN to sustain the money deal. Logically they dropped it but they didn't show in reruns or recycled clips which angered the fans. However the best period for the city bumper was the Summer of 2005, considered by some fans to be the best look ever. 2005 was a party that lasted from day till night (in the CN world). With a catchy theme and a new logo it went down in history as the best summer look for CN. The blocks are desperately trying to be found as CNZONE101 was flagged and got his bumpers removed, unfortunately Cartoon Network seems to ignore the city idea as they sometimes pay tribute to the 90's and the considered lame time zone of 2008.
